Electronic Systems Cooling.
Optimize electronic system design to effectively handle the heat, dust particles, and humidity changes that are an ever-present concern for electronic enclosures.
The Right Tool for the Job
Resolve the challenges of thermal engineering for electronic systems during the design phase. Electronic Systems Cooling is a vertical application specifically developed to simulate the physics of heat transfer and fluid flow within electronic enclosures.
As an add-on to Simcenter 3D Engineering Desktop, Electronic Systems Cooling is designed for a single purpose: to make it easy to understand and optimize various aspects of enclosed electronic systems, such as:
- Heat transfer
- Fluid flow
- The movement of particles such as dust
- Humidity and condensation
